A couple days ago I posted my status as having changed my name. I was going to explain why, but the site would only allow so many characters for my status. I was going to post the reason the following day, but realized it would probably take 3 or 4 days' postings (because of the 'character limitation').
For those of you dying to know (like Flowerdalejewel, JLB1053, and SAC200...lol), when I joined SparkPeople, they wouldn't let me be "sassyjo" because they said someone else was already using it, so I made myself "sassyjoe".
The 'sassy' part of my name is a mispronunciation of 'sissy' that has stuck with me as a family nickname for 57+ years. (My family doesn't know how to let go of things.) The 'jo' part of my name was supposed to be short for Johnson, a name I 'borrowed' from my hubby almost 19 years ago.
Long story short (as IF I could possibly do that) some of the people at SP think I'm a guy named "Joe." So a couple days ago I changed it to SassyJay, as in the letter "J".
Of course now they'll think I'm a guy named "Jay." :^(
